The Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) is the classic British native hedging plant also known as Quickthorn or Mayflower. The densely packed white scented flowers of the Hawthorn appear in early spring and turn to small black berries in the autumn.
Hawthorn is unfussy and will grow in all soil types which knits into a dense, wiry hedge that is thorny enough to be an effective barrier without being difficult to trim. It is a great intruder deterrent, and also a useful windbreak, whilst providing shelter for wildlife.
Hawthorn is a valuable addition to a native farm hedgerow. Mixed native farm hedges are excellent for attracting birds and other wildlife as hedges play host to insects, berries and other food sources. Native mixed hedges also offer winter protection for wildlife.
Planted at a rate of five plants per metre Hawthorn will create a dense prickly hedge. It is ideal for hedges 1m - 5m high, and grows quickly at a rate of 40cm - 60 cm per year.
